Each Spring, typically at the end of April, the department faculty, students and alumni are invited to Happy Hour at McGonigel's Mucky Duck. If the weather is nice, the gathering is taken outside to the back deck. In the past, the Mucky Duck has provided a generous, and free, happy hour buffet.
We have a great time with over 100 faculty, alumni, staff, students and friends of the department showing up each year. If you have not attended in the past, you should give it a try this year. The Mucky Duck is an Irish pub where the whole family is welcome. Photographs from past happy hour get-togethers are available at the department photo gallery.
Want to See What our Students are Doing?
Please join us at Student Research Conference & Industry Open House, an annual event of talks and poster presentations run by the students that takes place on campus the morning and afternoon before the happy hour. See the Student Research Conference page for the date, times and more information. Last year's event had 200 attendees, we hope you will join us this year.

This year, the Annual Alumni-Faculty-Student Happy Hour will again be on the back patio of McGonigal's Mucky Duck at 2425 Norfolk in Houston. All are invited. The Happy Hour will follow the Student Research Conference & Industry Open House to which all alumni are also invited.
